Yours doesn't have tow hooks or are you just swapping out the stock ones like I did?

Im planning on putting flairs on my back fenders in order to cover up and prevent the rust. Would it be easier or more efficient to use cut out flairs so i can cut out the rust or bolt on ones to cover it up.

took it for some exercise in the desert today and down in a big canyon
over a very wash board road to make sure it was put together with all the gum and bailin wire ...( just kidding about the gum and bailin wire) but it was a rough washboard road down into the canyon held up just fine and made it back home.

will post pics once I find the usb cable for the cheap camera, note to self " get a better camera"
